PM begins his day in US with interaction with Indian diaspora


Washington: Prime Minister Narendra Modi started his day in the American capital with an interaction with the Indian-American community members. Modi came out of the hotel where he is staying in Washington DC to meet the Indian-Americans who had gathered outside in large numbers since early in the morning to have a glimpse of their popular leader.

They were chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Modi, Modi’.

The Prime Minister, who has no scheduled engagement with the diaspora here this time, did not made any remarks. He walked along the rope, amidst tight security, shaking hands with the community members who had gathered from in and around Washington DC area. Modi arrived in Washington in the wee hours today to attend the two-day Nuclear Security Summit, which is being hosted by US President Barack Obama.

Leaders from more than 50 countries including over 20 heads of States are attending the global meet on March 31 and April 1.
